Friday Finds: Beach Wedding

I didn't get married on the beach but I did get engaged there. There's something extremely romantic about beach weddings. I recently created this card for a beach wedding since wedding season will be here before we know it, especially here on the West coast.

This inspired me to see what Etsy had to offer for the bride planning a beach wedding this year

The Great Google Project

I am attempting to Googlize my shop. Basically, I'm trying to get my cards and papergoods seen on Google when someone searches for a wedding card, for example. This involves changing my titles around and experimenting with my tag words. It's definitely a work in progress. Hopefully it will pay off by making my items more easily found on Google!

I am attempting to resurrect my blog! We'll see how it goes. The shop is good, I've been getting steady sales each month. I do keep up with my FaceBook Fan Page more often than the blog so if you want to know what I've been up to and I haven't been here, you can always check there. I am planning on doing a giveaway soon of memo clips so watch for that!

Rainy Days

We were supposed to be getting some rain this weekend here is San Diego but I don't see a cloud in the sky. I'm kind of sad, I was looking forward to some cooling rain and a break in the temperature. Instead, I had to turn on the fans at 8:45am and it looks like it's going to be HOT again today.

So, I made my own rainy day.

Introducing my new line of cards!

I'm debuting my new line of cards this week: Wedding Cakes
I've been playing with the idea for these cards all this last week. I was finally able to get into the craft room on Friday and put them into paper. I'm very pleased with how they've turned out and plan on making more soon. Definitely a Fall and Christmas one. I can pretty much make them in any color or theme. It's a very versatile design.

I can't recall ever seeing a Halloween wedding card so I made one!

This card is a special one for a baby shower at work this next week. I might make some Baby Cakes cards for the shop though!

Mini File Folders and Memo Clips: It's time for back to school!

My mini file folders were recently mentioned on this beautiful blog: The Sunshine Studio.

My memo clips have really taken off recently. I've sold 4 sets in the last couple of weeks! I have to get in the craft room to make more soon.
